L & M's Wedding - by BB Events (Pro Pix)

We were honored to witness the union of L & M, high school sweethearts whose relationship blossomed despite the obstacles of distance and military duties...it's true, distance does make the heart grow fonder!

Their whimsically fun wedding was held at the gorgeous Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. The ceremony was preceded by cultural traditions, which began at their private residence - a Chinese Tea Ceremony and all the traditional fun games to go with it! L & M had a photoshoot where their love first seeded - flashback to highschool. Check out their photos by Vero Suh below (here's her blog post of L & M's wedding). Every moment was captured brilliantly and beautifully!

Real Birthdays: Come Luau! - by BB Events

This was a very special day for a precious 1-year old girl. We had fun planning a backyard luau that incorporated  a tropical display of sweets and a mixed Hawaiian-Filipino savory menu (fully loaded with a whole Lechon). The day was packed with activities for the children, including a Lilo & Stitch jumper house (from Fantasy Jumperz), a special hula performance & lesson, paper lei making and swimming in the backyard pool! The guests also had access to a DIY photobooth - which took some super fun photos! A luau would not be complete without a lei for each guest - this one made of candies (yummy; photos below).
The balloons were anchored down by golf tees - a genius trick we picked up from Pinterest.
We had the most fun with the dessert table - with a backdrop filled with paper rosettes, streamers, a Martha Stewart birthday garland and photos of the birthday girl from 0 - 12 months! The sweets menu included multi-layered jello & haupia (coconut jello) cups on the 3-tier trays, mango cake (left),  3-layered vanilla cake (center), guava cake (right), pineapple cupcakes with coconut frosting, a fruit platter, brownie with oreo frosting push pops, pianono (a Filipino rolled cake) and a jar of chocolate chip cookies. All were homemade except the mango and guava cake, which were ordered from Aki's Bakery.

We were very fortunate to have found Carmel from A Polynesian Performance last minute, who put on a great hula performance, including a dedication hula to the birthday girl and her parents. She also gave the kids a fun hula lesson.

MAHALO for reading this post!

A sweet birthday!

We helped celebrate another first birthday by creating this fun and yummy dessert table. All the treats and decorations were homemade from cake pops & green velvet cupcakes to cookies and brownies. The birthday cake was a delicious chocolate cake from Costco personalized with DIY birthday flags. The impromptu backdrop was created by twirling a couple rolls of streamers to highlight the banner and unify the design of this display of birthday treats.

More credits to come on where to get free printables for the cupcake tags and banner!
